  1. Koke (Van) vs Token Toma (Wpg) #1 @koke_45 (Van) - 1000 #8 @TokenToma (Wpg) +1000 Season Series: Van 3-1 Koke showed a new dimension to his game this season as he was able to add a stout defense to his high flying offense punctuated by a sub 4.00 GAA and allowing fewer than 10 shots a game. Always a tough out in the playoffs, this may be Koke’s best opportunity at a breakout playoff run as he seems to have the pair of Bure and Linden flying high on both sides of the ice. TokenToma put together a clutch 9-1 streak to squeak into the playoffs as he held the tiebreaker over Kof94III’s champion Fed’s Flames. Not just any old 8 seed, Token possesses a +12 goal differential and played some very competitive games with Koke during the regular season despite losing the season series. Bottom Line: This is a pretty even matchup team wise and it comes down to who plays the better and more consistent game. I like Vancouver here as Koke really seems to be putting things together and has two main scoring options whereas Winnipeg only has one. Prediction: VAN in 5 Dethrox (Mtl) vs Mikeyv04 (Pit) #2 @dethrox (Mtl) -600 #7 @Mikeyv04 (Pit) +600 Season Series: Montreal 3-2 Montreal certainly took a unique path to success this season as they rode Patrick Roy, premium playmaking, and a contain defense en route to winning their division. Some red flags concern me considering a matchup with Pittsburgh on the docket. First of all Montreal was outshot this season by their opponent. Second, Montreal also spent more time in their own zone defending than they did on the attack and lastly they don’t have a gamebreaking talent on their roster. Despite these things, Dethrox plays a disciplined style that allows him to flourish by taking advantage of the other teams mistakes. Pittsburgh’s season was the antithesis of Montreal, the Pens outshot their opponents, outzoned them and had some of the worst goaltending this season. Pittsburgh’s roster is miles ahead of Montreal’s but the utilization makes me skeptical as Mario and Ulf Samuelsson carried a lot of the scoring burden while Stevens and Jagr seemed to be scuffling for the most part. A confounding yet dangerous team. Bottom Line: This series holds the biggest upset potential and I squirm at the idea of having to play Pittsburgh with Montreal. Montreal’s contain defense will have to be on point and if they can take advantage of Pittsburgh’s puck rushing defenseman, I see a clear path to victory despite all of the other stats. Montreal in 6 Jammerko94II (Bos) vs Stheds2000 (Wsh) #3 @Jammer - KO94IIsnes (Bos) -300 #6 @stheds2000 (Wsh) +300 Season Series: Boston 3-2 I get the sense from Jammer that Boston is not his favorite team but you would not be able to tell by the success they had this season. Leading the league in GAA and shots for seems to be a delicious recipe for success. The only thing really slowing down Boston is a relative inexperience to their opponent in online play. Even with that in mind, I wouldn’t be so quick to bury the Kof94II champ as his numbers speak for themself. In the other corner of this heavyweight battle is online veteran stheds2000, who used a low event, puck possessing style to his benefit. This roster is perfectly constructed to compete with Boston as the Caps blueline can handle Boston’s talented roster while Bondra will do his best to put the B’s on their heels during counter attacks. Bottom Line: This has the makings of a 7 gamer and could be a very frustrating series on both sides of the ice. These teams are perfectly situated to punch each other in the mouth with viscous body checks and stifling defense. Whoever loses their cool in this matchup will likely see their playoff run stop well short of expectation. Prediction: Boston in 7 Stantonator (LA) vs Angryjay93 (NYR) #4 Stantonator (LA) -100 #5 Angryjay93 (NYR) +100 Season Series: LA 2-0 Stantonator, hot off an impressive showing at Kof94IV continues to ride the wave in LA as he used a swarming offensive attack and excellent manual goaltending to great success this season. Using a balanced scoring attack, LA cobbled together the 2nd highest scoring offense despite only having one individual in the top 10 scoring (#8 Sandstrom). Pair this with a couple of big heavies on the backline and you have to like Stantonator’s chances at a long playoff run. You let one GENS guy win a SNES championship and it seems everyone answers the bell to take him down as this season was so stacked with competition we had to have TWO A Leagues. We all know what we get with the Angryjay style, tons of puck possession, lots of passing, and stifling contain defense. NYR led the league in fewest shots allowed, that paired with their league leading attack zone time and special teams may be their best defense against LA’s balanced attack. Bottom Line: A true pick em as LA seems to have a slight roster edge in this matchup and Stantonator has been on absolute fire since Toronto. Still, it is my odds and if I go down, I’m going down believing in myself! To the prediction! Prediction: NYR in 7 Odds to win Cup: Jammer (Bos): +400 Dethrox (Mtl): +500 Angryjay93 (NYR): +600 Stantonator (LA): +600 Koke (Van): +800 Stheds2000 (Wsh): +1300 MikeyV04 (Pit): +2500 TokenToma (Wpg): +5000

  2. Welcome to the Playoff Preview for the C-Unit (SNES) 1st Round Series! This took quite a while and I’m too lazy to do another one, so you could say this will cover the entire playoff race. LFG! 1. Birdman8686 (PIT) - 1500 8. thatdrizzle (QUE) + 1500 Season Series (4-1 PIT) @birdman8686 must be a fan of dual-personality/schizophrenic celeb Miley Cyrus (AKA Hannah Montana), because he came into the C-Unit like a wrecking ball! Birdie’s Pittsburgh Penguins squad led the entire league in GF/G (6.08) AND in GA/G (2.88) and ended the regular season on a 17-game win streak en route to a 36-4 overall record. “HOLY s**t, BATMAN!” is right, Robin! He plays a solid two-way game and has been able to harness the power of both Jagr’s and “Super” Mario’s mullets while still unleashing the crushing 55 & 5 blueline tandem of Larry Murphy and Ulf (THE ULF) Samuelsson on any opponents not skating with their heads up through the middle of the ice. The Bird IS the word, and this is the clear team to beat going into the playoffs. Across the dot from Birdie is the man whose name just begs the question, “wait, which drizz?”. I’m of course referring to @thatdrizzle, whose Quebec Nordiques managed to sneak into the post-season in the last weekend of the regular season. Drizz is a lifelong genesis player, so the fact that he’s here in the post-season on the SNES is a feat in itself. The regular season matchup between these two teams was one-sided in Birdie’s direction, but in fairness to the Drizz, birdman got the best of pretty much everybody in the league this season. Drizz accomplished a lot in making the playoffs, but he’s running into a friggen buzzsaw in this matchup, and so… PREDICTION: PIT in 5 2. Straka82 (CHI) - 1000 7. DanK (VAN) + 1000 Season Series (2-2 tie, 2 OT) Here come @Straka82's Blackhawks, a team that was just as stingy on defense as they were hungry on offense. Straka coached his Hawks to an impressive 29-11 regular season record by leaning heavily on the wonderboy Jeremy Roenick and his heterosexual life partner, Steve Larmer, to put the biscuit in the basket on feeds from pretty much everyone else on the team. While not giving up much in their own end, Chicago’s heavy-hitting blueline tandem of “Smelly” Chelios and Steve Smith (the white one) got plenty involved in the offense with crisp passing to set up goals. And having Eddie the Eagle minding the net doesn’t hurt either. Straka knows what he has in this Blackhawks team and he’s got them firing on all cylinders headed into the playoffs. His opponent, the fiery ginger they call @DanK, is a bit of an enigma. When he’s on, he can play with most anyone in the C-Unit, but his inconsistency resulted in him showing up to the rink either severely inebriated or severely feeling the post-effects of said inebriation. DanK’s Vancouver squad is built for speed, and DanK likes to up the intensity even more by feeding Pavel Bure (#10), that little Russian ball of hate, plenty of AMPHETAMINES before each game. No one outside of Mogilny skates faster than Bure, and few little men (or big men) can hit as hard. Both coaches prefer an up-tempo, pass-heavy game, and they look to light the lamp via one-timers. Straka and DanK split their regular season series 2-2, with 2 games ending in OT and with each team holding court on their home ice. If DanK can control his urges (it’s just one measly week of games Danny, c’mon man, you can do this!), then this should be a barnburner of a series! PREDICTION: CHI in 7 3. Triple A (MTL) - 500 6. lego (NYR) + 500 Season Series (3-1 NYR) @Triple A is known to many around here of recent vintage as an organizer of leagues. He’s the guy who actually does the work that everybody else just sits around talking about doing, with/without our thumbs up our collective asses. He’s also the owner of the C league’s 3rd highest win% (.650), and his Montreal Canadiens (English: Mount Royal Inhabitants) have been scoring goals at a prolific rate all season long (6.08 GF/G). He plays well whether he’s at home or away (13-7 home/road records) and he feasted upon most all of his conference opponents to a 14-8 record amongst that group. However, within his conference, AAA had trouble with both birdman (join the f**king club) and with his 1st round opponent, @lego. Lego’s NY Rangers have been resting up and watching the rest of the league catch up since the 3rd day of regular season play. Lego completed his season faster than anyone, compiling a very respectable 23-17 record in the process. Since that time, Lego has been a replacement coach for about 12 other leagues/teams, so he’s not resting on his laurels. Lego took the season matchup here, but a lot of time has passed since then. Both coaches bring different squads into this series that I doubt will much resemble anything like in their regular season matchups. Assuming Triple A can keep the hamster that powers his internet connection to continue running on its wheel non-stop, this should be a great series, and one that I’m looking forward to watching as a spectator. PREDICTION: NYR in 7 4. mightyeskimo (WPG) + 100 5. blacktopkid (CGY) - 100 Season Series (4-0 WPG, 1 OT) [blacktopkid didn’t finish his season] @mightyeskimogrew up a yuuuuuuge Atlanta Thrashers fan, and he was absolutely devastated when the evil owner of the franchise, in collusion with Garold Bettman, decided to rip out his heart and move the franchise north of the border to Winnipeg, Manitoba. “Why do the Canadians get all the good stuff?”, he lamented. But absence makes the heart grow fonder and time heals all wounds (thanks, Captain Cliché), so he jumped at the chance to coach his former childhood heroes, the Jets. And coach them he did! Winnipeg’s record of 24-16 placed them amongst just 4 teams in the C-Unit to finish the season with a win% of .600 or higher. One man keeps the Jets flying high and that man is Teemu Selanne. Eskimo’s version of the Finnish Flash had 91 goals on the year and finished the regular season with a PTS/G avg of nearly 3 (2.875)! He was also no stranger to the Sin Bin, and the f**king jerk racked up almost 1 minute/game spent visiting the penalty box (32 mins total). @blacktopkid stampedes into the post-season with his thundering squad of Flames. I was actually going to make a pretty terrible joke here but even the pixelated version of Gary Suter scares the hell out of me, so I’ll shut my damn yapper and just say that Calgary can hit with the best of them and can take a beating on offense as well, often muscling in effort goals and capitalizing on 2nd and 3rd chances. I don’t expect this series to be as one-sided as was the two teams’ regular season matchups, which were dominated by the Mightiest of Eskimos (4-0). The key for the Jets is keep Selanne soaring around the ice making plays on net, and not finding himself drinking too much PowerAde™ in the box, waiting for his teammates to kill another penalty. Blacktop is the brother of @Triple A, and he managed to get the upper hand on his sibling 3-0 during their season series, so we know he can play. The question is, will the Flames be up for finishing their checks? Or will they do like their coach and leave opportunities out on the ice? (*the joke here is that blacktopkid only played 38/40 games, hence the whole “finish their checks” thing. Jesus tittyfucking Christ do I have to explain everything to you people?) PREDICTION: WPG in 6 ODDS TO FONDLE THE C-CUP (based on projected playoff path) birdman8686 (PIT) + 300 Straka82 (CHI) + 400 Triple A (MTL) + 550 mightyeskimo (WPG) + 1000 blacktopkid (CGY) + 1100 lego (NYR) + 1250 DanK (VAN) + 1450 thatdrizzle (QUE) + 2000 *Public Service Announcement: as @kingraph stated, always bet with your head, not your heart. If you have a gambling problem, like say you’re down 10 large to your guy in Philly and you REALLY need to pick a winner, for the sake of your own two (currently) functioning kneecaps, then we suggest you visit Las Vegas, NV (USA).

  4. Place your bets...my 1st round predictions and Vegas odds to win the cup! SNES A East is one of the most stacked leagues ever assembled, but as I pierce through the top 3 seeds really stand out from the group. Remember, bet with your head, not over it. If you have a gambling problem, call 1-800-GAMBLER. Summer'20 SNES A East Vegas Odds 1. The Professor (DET) - 1500 8. McMarkis (PHI) +1500 Season Series (2-0 DET) @TheProfessor comes in as a veteran of live King of 94 events, but this is his first online Classic league and he finishes 1st in the regular season standings with a 30-9-1 record! With that Detroit firepower, he put up 6.42 goals per game, while only giving up 4.02, a differential of 2.4! Anything over 2.0 is a super strong power ranking, and The Professor is one of 3 in this league to achieve this GDif. Well deserving of the top spot in a stacked league! One the other end of this matchup is @McMarkis with the Philadelphia Flyers. McMarkis edged into the final playoff spot with the head-to-head tiebreaker of kingraph's Kings (yikes). A veteran of the online scene, McMarkis is definitely a skilled SNES player who can compete with the best of them. However, the Flyers are ranked as the 16th best team and can be tough to use. Especially compared with the blistering offense of Detroit, and an elite coach in TheProfessor, this will be a very tough challenge for McMarkis to overcome. PREDICTION: DET in 5 2. Annatar (NYR) -1700 7. Chongo (PIT) +1700 Season Series (5-0 NYR) @annatar has won multiple Classic leagues with a lot of 2nd place finishes as well. Probably the most decorated online SNES player, he takes the New York Rangers to the 2nd seed with a powerful 29-10-1 record. Just like The Professor, Annatar has a 2.03 goal differential, with tighter defense at only 3.62 goals per game. He actually swept the regular season series, outscoring Chongo 27-13 in those games. @Chongo is another newcomer to the SNES world....sort of. He's the brother (I think?) of the two time KO94 champion Kingof94! That's about as good of a sparring partner you can get. Plus he has the best team in Pittsburgh on his side. However, given the regular season results and facing one of the best out there, I don't see Chongo moving past the first round. PREDICTION: NYR in 5 3. kingof94 (CHI) - 900 6. dangler (BOS) + 900 Season Series (2-0 CHI, 1 OT) kingof94 is arguably the best SNES player...ever. He is the only 2 time SNES KO94 champion, and most recent SoChel tournament champion against some heavy competition. His finishes this season with the highest GF/G at 6.73 and the lowest GA/G at 3.52...for a GDif of 3.21. Like I mentioned anything over 2 on the GDif has historically been dominant, and to be over 3 is rare. And this is the 3 seed? WTF. kingof94 really rounds out the "big 3" this season in terms of how they performed in the regular season in a competitive league. The Professor really got the best of him in the regular season to earn the #1 spot in their conference, but nobody should be betting against this guy. Getting kingof94 as the 3 seed is a tough draw for @dangler , who finishes in the #6 spot. Dangler is no slouch when it comes to SNES, don't let my odds fool you. And he has Boston, arguably the #2 team behind Pittsburgh. He's been around longer than anyone else in the online scene, so he knows what it takes to grind out and mentally focus in a 7 game series. kingof94 isn't unbeatable (even I won 2 games vs him...humble brag) but you're going to have to play flawless in order to take 4 out of 7 against that dude. I think Dangler will make a series of it, but ultimately he's facing someone who has proven in the recent years to be the best player out there. PREDICTION: CHI in 6 4. JotaC007 (MTL) + 200 5. BobKudelski (BUF) -200 Season Series (3-1 MTL, 2 OT) Despite the regular season going to @JotaC007, two of those games were in OT, with one having Montreal score in the final 5 seconds to tie it! So that's about as even as you can get! Jota has playing great 94 and is well-deserving of the #4 seed this season. However, his opponent @Bob Kudelski has consistently shown that he is a force to be reckoned with. Only 1 goal scored separates these two guys in the regular season as Bob's Sabres put up 200 goals vs Jota's Canadiens' 199. However, Bob K had a tougher defense, finishing 4th in goals against behind the "big 3" mentioned earlier. So while Jota has the higher seed, I still put Bob K as the slight favorite in this series. It will be a close one, but I have the Sabres edging out the Canadiens in a 7 game brawl! I already purchased my ticket to watch this series. PREDICTION: BUF in 7 ODDS TO WIN THE CUP (based on projected playoff path) If my predictions for the first round come true, we will see a matchup of kingof94 vs Annatar and The Professor vs Bob K in the semis. I can see all 4 of those winning the cup, what a decorated group! And if I'm wrong and we have an upset, the projected path does not get any easier for the lower seeds! kingof94 (CHI) +350 TheProfessor (DET) + 400 annatar (NYR) +450 BobKudelski (BUF) +800 JotaC007 (MTL) +1800 dangler (BOS) +2000 McMarkis (PHI) + 4000 Chongo (PIT) + 4500

  14. ROM: NHL95_34_Team_ROM.bin This is an editable 34-team ROM for NHL'95 (hack details in this thread). At this time, you can't play the season mode (it'll crash on player stats), but can create custom ROMs for exhibition play, or playoff play. I figured I would make this like wboy's tile molestor screenshots, but with text that you can copy/paste to make it a bit easier. First, in order for this to work in NOSE, you have to add the following text (and save) to the roms.ini file: [GM T-50856 -34] Comments=NHL 95 - 30 Team ROM OriginalROMProductCode=GM T-50856 -00 Teams=34 1st splash screen TM Offset: 1CE1D8 Palette (decimal): 1928696 2nd splash screen TM Offset: 1C4C6A Palette (decimal): 1890442 Title screen TM Offset: 18DAB2 Palette (decimal): 1657522 Title Screen Logo TM Offset: 195240 Palette (decimal): 1665216 Team Start Menu Logos They are all 4D6 (hex) in size, so you can use relative location in TM of 4D6 and press F5 to repeat to scroll through easily. 19A99C 19AE72 19B348 19B81E 19BCF4 19C1CA 19C6A0 19CB76 19D04C 19D522 19D9F8 19DECE 19E3A4 19E87A 19ED50 19F226 19F6FC 19FBD2 1A00A8 1A057E 1A0A54 1A0F2A 1A1400 1A18D6 1A1DAC 1A2282 1A2758 1A2C2E 1A3104 1A35DA 1A3AB0 1A3F86 1A445C 1A4932 Palette: 1723904 Size is 544 (12 x 34).

Meaning, the center ice logo must use the same palette as the home jerseys strips in NOSE. The location will change with any change in team data. I suggest anyone modding the ROM to change the strips/logos first before changing team data as the following palette locations are pretty handy. These will only work if you haven't changed the team data: 1733388 1734108 1734842 1735500 1736216 1736884 1737588 1738298 1738912 1739612 1740346 1741072 1741780 1742400 1743092 1743742 1744474 1745178 1745854 1746568 1747262 1747936 1748612 1749260 1749884 1750584 1751320 1752092 1752818 1753538 1754178 1754850 1755604 1756358 Menu Banners TM Offset: 142910 Palette (decimal): 1345168 Scoreboard Banners TM Offset: 1B4C6A Palette (decimal): 1810826 1995/2018 Stanley Cup Champions TM Offset: 197176 Palette (decimal): 1676822 Player Cards TM Offset (3bpp linear): A2C42 Palette (decimal): 663022 Each card is 36A (hex) apart, and they use the same palette, so easy to skip through by using relative Go To and F5 in TM.
